Within the framework of assignments, the issue of planting of greenery
in Yerevan was touched upon as well. 'A principally new approach to
the culture of planting of greenery in the capital must be taken,' the
Mayor stated. It was reported that a program, intended for functional
greenery, is being drafted. According to the program, the parks of
Yerevan are intended to be secured with new trees and plants, which
will correspond to the local environmental conditions. As to the
education sphere, it was mentioned that a number of issues in public
schools need urgent solution. Subscription system will be invested

establishment ties.

The Mayor emphasized the importance of reconstructing the 'Kanaz'
cultural center and founding a cinema theater in that place. 'The
'Kanaz' can become a social cinema, where tickets will not be sold
and where only patriotic and informative films will be presented,'
Karen Karapetyan said.
